Nice bike, nice spec' & nice price tag! Have fun on it!I was hoping no-one would notice the unfinished kitchen, thank for reminding me :-). I bought some really lame Dulux trade paint which takes days to dry, so in this cold weather I didnt think it would be good to do any painting. My partner doesnt seem to mind, she has new counter tops, new oven, hob etc to play with and keep her busy.
No I wont be racing. I realise its way over the top for what I need but I plan to keep it a long time. I sold my Genesis Croix De Fer a couple of years ago and regretted it. The reputation of Focus and the fact I couldnt take my eyes off the pics online kinda made the decision for me. The mechanism for putting on and taking off the wheels is pretty quirky but I really like it. The spec is pretty awesome and the bike is as light as a feather, perfect for my bad back when I am trying to lift it in or out my car.
Colin, the Focus Mares AX in the photo I posted is about £850. It may be worth a look.I hope to get a CX bike in a few months time so I looked up this Focus - wow, £4k+ - that's way out of my price range!
It looks a really nice bike, but my budget will only be about one third of that.
